Had 2nd MRI with contrast on spine. Have numerous perineural cysts. What can be done to reduce back pain and rib pain from these cysts?

Depends: These perineural cysts can be treated with transforminal epidural steroid injections or even radiofrequency ablation procedures to the facet joints to reduce pain from them.

See you doc plus start a wellness prog., vits minerals, yoga, massage and acupuncture. ...Read more

Headaches lower back pain left rib pain feel bloated and super full but am not what's going on ? :(

Classic pregnancy symptoms don't start until after you have missed your period. An early pregnancy test can detect pregnancy as early as six days before your period. ...Read more
